In case you haven’t heard, Takealot and Superbalist will this week host a sale beginning Wednesday informed by shoppers’ habits.

It’s a novel idea. Instead of throwing a dart at a wall full of product photos to choose what goes on sale, the retailer will use information from shoppers, from what they search for most often, to what’s most popular in wishlists.

That said, the retailer has given us a brief view into what’s most popular on the site, in addition to its fashion and homeware subsidiary Superbalist.

Here’s what’s most popular on each site (taken between July 2018 and June 2019):
